Lucy by Kathyrn Lasky, 312 pages, read by Melody, on 03/31/2012

Lucy is the newest book in Kathryn Lasky’s Daughters of the Sea series.  The series follows three sisters in turn of the century America who discover that they are mermaids.  Raised apart, they find each other and their heritage.  Books one and two are about the other sisters;  May, raised by a lighthouse keeper and his resentful wife and, Hannah, a servant to a wealthy family.  Lucy is adopted by a minister and his social climbing wife.  Her mother has high aspirations for Lucy to make an excellent marriage but Lucy meets a shipbuilder who catches her heart.  I have enjoyed all the books in the series.  Lasky is a very talented writer who captures both the spirit of the girls and the worlds that they inhabit.
